Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

By the way: this was in fact what Nintendo of Canada was teasing on Facebook throughout the week.

In the new game, Donkey Kong and his friends take on a horde of icy invaders who are freezing their tropical island home. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Wii U features beautiful high-definition graphics as well as off-screen play using the Wii U GamePad.

6th February 2014 – Donkey Kong and his D.K. Crew are back for another wild platform adventure in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, launching exclusively on Wii U on 21st February 2014. This frosty jungle caper features colourful HD graphics bringing vibran t detail both to the big ape’s fur as well as the lush, dynamic scenery, paired with a chest-thumping soundtrack composed by the celebrated David Wise. Visit the brand new website for a taste of all the powerful action, or take a look at the Donkey Kong Hub to savour some of DK’s history.

This time around, the Kongs have their island home invaded by the Snowmads: new cold-hearted foes who arrive on longships and, with a toot of a magical horn, turn the tropical paradise into their frozen fortress. To make matters worse, when the arctic cyclone sweeps over Donkey Kong Island, the Kongs are blown far away and must begin an epic journey spanning six differently-themed islands, to reclaim their banana hoard and thaw out their home. On each island, a multitude of fierce and frantic levels await that throw Rambi rides, underwater antics, epic boss battles and secret exits across your path. On many occasions, the new dynamic camera twists the action in a way never seen before, lending a more cinematic point of view to frenzies of Barrel Cannon blasts and Mine Carts careering off the rails.
